Closing:
January 30, 2011

Theater: New Victory Theater / 209 West 42nd Street, New York, NY, 10036

Synopsis: 

As dizzyingly eventful a drama as Shakespeare ever conceived, Cymbeline tells of a beautiful princess separated from her beloved, the cruel step-mother who tries to foil her, a credulous husband duped by an adversary, an exiled nobleman who kidnaps a king's sons and a Roman invasion of Britain. All that and more is neatly tucked into a lightning-paced, streamlined production in which six versatile actors play 14 roles.

    Love, War and Betrayal in Busy Lives of the Estranged

    Charles Isherwood

    December 3, 2007: Just about everyone left living at the end of Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline” is onstage for the play’s crowded climax. And just about everyone has a surprise or two to disclose. The queen is not doing so well, the good doctor informs the king, but wait till you hear what she just told me! The Roman general’s page, a willowy young man, is revealed to be neither Italian nor a man. Those rustic, dirt-begrimed warriors? Royal blood runs in their veins. The presumed dead are really living, the presumed living declared dead.
